Published DateTo the editor,
This year at the Tilton-Northfield Fire District meeting the voters will once again be asked the same exact question in article six as they were asked at last years meeting on article eight. To see if the voters will vote not to require residency as a condition of employment with the district for positions of fire chief, captain and other fire/emergency personnel positions. Last year this article was tabled by a large majority, who spoke loudly that they wanted the commissioners to handle the issue. I would only hope that after the current election results for the position of fire commissioner that this article would be tabled by the very same people who are bringing it forward this year. So we can put this issue behind us and move forward in a positive manner. I think we all agree that the fire professionals we have all do a great job in providing services to both communities.
So let's all attend the meeting on March 18 at 7 p.m. and watch to make sure the right thing for a positive direction is done.
